One of those days

Ever had one of those where you were given the run a round, passed from pillar to post, wrong department, try this one, sorry you need to speak to so and so etc etc !!  Well that was my day so what do you do when you've pulled enough hair to create wig you bring out the stamps browse through the challenge blogs and stamp, stamp, stamp the frustration away.  Thank goodness I can loose myself in paper and bling.  I've now resurfaced feeling calm and at peace with the world, that is until tomorrow.

Usually I only create a card that fits maybe one or two challenges, but I've excelled by myself to day and I think this card will qualify for a few, that is if I don't get my links all messed up!!.

For this card I've used the sketch from Midnight Madness Challenge MMSC 72 this will be the first time  I've entered one of their challenges. The Girlie stamp is from set #1 ' Oh so Girlie' by lili of the Valley I've coloured the image with Pro Markers and made the flowers from ordinary cartridge paper  coloured with inks with beads added to the centres, lace ribbon and charm complete the card. Ooops forgot to mention glitter added here and there on the image.  I followed a lovely tutorial by Valita to make the flowers which can be found here

Hope you like and a big thank you for all your interest and comments

I will enter this card into the following challenges
